For readers 18 and up!!!
Bitten is the first book in The Women of the Otherworlds series by Kelley Armstrong. Now, please be advised, you must be 18 or up to read this. Lets just say there are some graphic wolf nookie scenes that I personally wouldn't want youngings to read!
Synopsis (courtesy of Kelley Armstrong's website):
"Elena Michaels is the world's only female werewolf. And she's tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her— her temper, her violence—but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she's growing content with that life, with being that person.
So she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she's trying to live as a human. When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him. Once this is over, she'll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human. Which is what she wants. Really."
I just have to say that this is one of the best werewolf books I've read in a long time. Elena is a heroine that fellow female readers will admire. She's strong, independent and hilarious! I love strong minded women that aren't afraid to get hurt. That's exactly what Elena is.
As far as literary crushes go (b/c I know I need someone to lust after), Clay tops the charts. He's loyal to the core, honest, strong, sarcastic and straight up sexy! I had to fan my face a few times!!! *wink, wink*-Cold shower for me, please. He's not one of those sweet lovey dovey guys, but an Alpha that will have you wishing for steamy dreams.
Bitten is a mixture of werewolves, action, mystery, cliffhangers, suspense and romance. If those are things that interest you, then I definitely would recommend Bitten.
Needless to say, Stolen (#2 in the Otherworlds series) is on my list of "To Be Read." So be expecting that review in the near future!
